Aloha Kam,

I wanted to thank you so much for putting together such a great training on such short notice. You are a dynamic trainer full of energy and so engaging. Several site coordinators approached me for your contact information immediately after,  our Hawaii island manager wants to set up a training with you and I would like to schedule my Kauai island sites. When you’ve been in this business for so long it is so wonderful to have a breath of fresh air like you come in. We look forward to working with  you in the near future.
